The jury judges the submissions by quality and originality. ‘Judging the submissions each year is a lot of work but certainly no punishment’, says chairman of the 2020 jury Fred Weerman. ‘It is a pleasure to take note of interesting, original, well researched and well worded findings of students about the many different topics. The width of the fields of science of the UvA can also be seen in the theses. That is why it sometimes seems that we are comparing apples to pears, but the jury is very capable and usually in unison.’

The UvA Thesis Prize 2021 was for Lotte Mertens (Faculty of Science) for her thesis Spontaneous Unitary Violations and Effective Non-linearity in Relation to Quantum State Reduction.
